Our clients wanted to transform the outdoor terrace of their Victorian property in Bermondsey into an al fresco dining spot.
We designed a contemporary terrace with lush tropical greenery to pair seamlessly with the modern interior style.

Materials & Planting.
Composite decking and porcelain slabs with a white gravel infill offer contrasting textures.
White rendered retaining walls and timber cladding complement the property's contemporary aesthetic.
A feature Palm tree provides vertical and sculptural interest.
The sunset hues of Kniphofia and Crocosmia add vibrancy and splashes of colour in the plush green tropical foliage.
A tessellated terrace provides zoning and low-level interest in this compact space.
The zig-zag formula transforms the terrace floor into an attractive feature.
The contrasting hard landscape materials laid in this geometric pattern gives the illusion of greater depth.
a luscious backdrop
The white rendered retaining wall filled with a variety of tropical plants extends across the length of the rear boundary wall.
The lush foliage softens the clean lines, adding texture and pops of colour creating a verdant backdrop.
Bifold glazing connects the open plan kitchen-dining space and outdoor terrace areas.
We wanted both zones to feel interconnected with a complementary aesthetic and flush threshold.
The outdoor terrace becomes a harmonised extension of the open plan interior to create a larger entertaining space.
